Soldotna, Alaska – By order of the Director’s Office the State Forester has lifted the burn closure on all state, private and municipal land on the Kenai Peninsula. Campfires, charcoal BBQ’s, warming, and cooking fires may be used. At this time all federal lands are still under the closure order. Kenai Peninsula citizens and visitors must be aware that the “Burn Suspension” is still in effect. This covers the burn permit system of the Division of Forestry where debris piles and burn barrels are of concern. Permits holders are reminded to phone the “burn permit call in number” at 907-260-4269 for updated information. As the Fourth of July weekend approaches all citizens are reminded that the use of fireworks is not permitted on the Kenai Peninsula.
